The dynamic form of this mixed-use residential development references Lake Ontario, distinguishing the two internal programs on either side of the gateway entrance. The central courtyard is framed by the elevated bridge, reinforcing the streetscape and building frontage. This walkway provides a dramatic ceiling condition to the site’s central vehicular access below. The building includes three levels of underground parking and amenity space at the ground level and upper terrace. The materiality is characterized by a sleek and translucent glazing and is stepped back toward the rear of the property for appropriate transition with the low-rise neighbourhood context.
This project contains residential condominium units, senior retirement units, and long-term care units dedicated for Alzheimer’s and/or Dementia patients within an 11-storey form.
